We set out to design the definitive way to explore Sega's 16-bit and 8-bit era. A reimagining of the underdog that led a 16-bit revolution. Engineered with an FPGA. No emulation. 1080p. Zero lag. Total accuracy. Mega Sg is not a plug n' play toy. Compatible with the 2,180+ Sega Genesis, Mega Drive and Master System game cartridge library. Explore and re-live one of the greatest video game systems of all time with no compromises.
Just like Super Nt, Mega Sg uses the most advanced retro-gaming video upscaling on the planet. No other game system is like one from Analogue. Every pixel is razor sharp with accurate, stunning colors. Not to mention true lagless video output.
Mega Sg plugs directly into your original Sega CD & Mega CD with its edge connector, hidden behind an expansion door. Just like the original. But now in stunning, lag free 1080p.1
You can finally play Sega wirelessly and lag-free with 8BitDo's high quality retro M30 controller. We partnered up with 8BitDo to offer matching controllers for Mega Sg, including a wireless 2.4g receiver at discounted price.2
Mega Sg is a reference quality video game system with reference quality control. Featuring aspect ratio preservation, multiple video resolutions, scanlines, scalers and more.
With the YM2612 at it's helm, Sega's 16-bit era is home to some of the most iconic music in video game history. Music this significant should be experienced in high fidelity. Mega Sg outputs the highest quality digital audio: 48KHz 16 bit stereo. It's like hearing Sega for the first time.
Mega Sg uses an original-style cartridge slot and controller ports. Included in every box is a special made Sega Master System adapter. Mega Sg even has an edge connector for the Sega CD and Mega CD. This means it is compatible with the original Sega Genesis, Mega Drive and Master System game cartridges plus the original hardware and accessories. All the way from the Game Genie to the Sega CD.
Sega's early console history is a rich and unique era to explore- which is why we designed Mega Sg to support it all. We will be releasing a series of game cartridge adapters for Mark III, Game Gear, Sega MyCard, SG-1000, & SC-3000. Each individual system totally implemented into Mega Sg via FPGA. Coming 2019 and sold separately.3
Mega Sg has the same unparalleled compatibility as Super Nt. The core functionality of each system is engineered directly into an Altera Cyclone V, a sophisticated FPGA. We spent thousands of hours engineering each system via FPGA for absolute accuracy. Unlike the knock off and emulation systems that riddle the market today, you’ll be experiencing Sega's 16-bit and 8-bit era free of compromises. Mega Sg is designed to preserve video game history, with the respect it deserves.
In 1994, Digital Illusions (DICE) canceled a AAA, 99% complete Sega Genesis game called Hardcore. For 23 years Hardcore has gone unreleased. It has become one of the most sought after unreleased video games. We're thrilled to announce that Hardcore is being released for the first time ever on Mega Sg. The only known source code of the game was stored on a single, dead hard drive that was barely recovered.
Hardcore is a fast paced, euro-style run'n'gun, space base thriller. We're dedicated to preserving this piece of video game history and Hardcore is included digitally on each Mega Sg system. For legal reasons, Hardcore's name has been changed to "Ultracore". The game remains the same.
